Well, let's see how.... I woke up on the Right side of the floor today,, had my morning cup(s) of coffee, and was planning my day to tinker after the bout of thundery storms that passed thru yesterday and last night. I was surprised by a knock on the door and the mail lady had a package for me,, On a Sunday,, Imagine that? My new bathroom sink arrived in a box twice the size of the sink and no bubble wrap or styrofoam peanuts. I do enjoy bubble wrap, pop,pop,pop,pop,pop,pop, oh, sorry, was reminiscing the joys of bubble wrap. Anyways. It was a pretty white plastic, and arrived 3 days early. So I replan my day. Going to replace the bathroom sink that was heavily damaged by a rouge tooth brush assault the other day. I get out the square screwdriver, a long Philips and short Phillips and aspirin. I remember 1st thing to turn the water off. ( I can be a pretty fart  smeller. Error smart feller,), and even turned faucet to drain the lines. I had to take the vanity doors off to make room to get into a Gumby position twisting the body in ways is was not intended to bend. I get the doors off and the lil drawer out and get the water lines and drain disconnected. I then spend the next 15 minutes bent into an insane yoga position unscrewing the 6 screws that firmly hold the sink in place. If there was an emergency, I would just have to stay there and suffer the consequences, I get it all undone and pull out the old sink. I spend another 8 minutes in yoga-ing myself to get into an upright position, hearing bones I didn't know I had, snap crackle and pop. I finally managed to get myself and the old sink into the kitchen, to swap the faucet and drain over to the new sink. Here's an FYI. That little drain tube can sure hold a lot of hair, kinda looked like I pulled a squirrel out of there,, A wet squirrel at that. Ummm gross. I get everything swapped over and set the new sink in place. I manage to get myself into the Gumby position again to put the screws underneath that hold it in place with those plastic retainers. Now I have been told. You crank em down till they snap, then back off a 1/2 turn, But I opted to be safe and just snug them up. I reconnect the drain and water lines, put cabinet doors back on and the crashed back in place.I turn the water back on, an NO leaks. (Well that's a 1st)..So that started off my day of honey do's rather nicely. I hold my coffee cup up and says cheers, to all the others tackling a project today.

But the results are soooo pretty!  I'm thinking of redoing mine like we have the house.  A rubber stopper when needed and dollar store mesh strainers to keep out the hair.  Not sure that's necessary though in an RV when you pretty much pipe right into the tank and I sure hate cleaning those strainers out....

HAHAHAHA! I can SO relate! Yoga Positions, "Crankin' 'em till they snap off and then backin' 'em off a half turn"... We must be brothers that were separated at birth.
